Like Girls' Night Out (1999) and Lies (1999), this South Korean drama seeks to transgress that country's conservative social codes through sex. The film focuses on two free-spirited punkettes with dyed yellow hair, Una (Lee Jae-eun) and Sang-hee (Kim Ki-yeon), who pick up average salary man Yeong-kyu (Kim Hyeon-chul) and take him back to their suburban studio for a three-way shagfest. Later, Yeong-kyu continues his affair with a comely middle-class colleague. In his absence, Una gets an illegal abortion, and the pair grows increasingly jealous of Yeong-kyu's mistress. Though lacking the sinus-clearing eroticism of Lies, this film is joyously edgy, violent, and antisocial.
